SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Continuing to introduce the next wave of talent, Santa Clara baseball introduces Garrett Doane. Doane attended Basha High School in Chandler, Ariz. and was coached by Coach Schilling and Coach Maxwell.
"Santa Clara was an easy choice for me because the coaches seem very dedicated and motivated with their new recruits," said Doane. "From my first interaction with Coach Ribas, I could tell it was a top-notch athletic program that I can't wait to play for. I am also very excited to be a part of this school because of the exciting but challenging academics, amazing campus and of course the California weather. Having played baseball year round in Arizona, the great weather will be just another bonus for me."
